Imperial Yellow, A Novel by Douglas Atwill
The review must be at least 50 characters long. The organization of the book is by covert mission which makes it very easy to pick up and read a chapter at a time and put back down. I usually wanted to read the next though! The most remarkable thing about the Mossad in my opinion is that they extend their protection to Jews all over the world, not just from Israel.
I found it remarkable that they risk their lives for missions that might not sound that important. For example rescuing the "Syr This is a nonfiction book written like a spy novel. For example rescuing the "Syrian virgins". Because they had a shortage of Jewish young men left in Syria, there was no one for them to marry. The Mossad went into hostile enemy territory and took them out with them to Israel. The sad thing about this book is that it seems no matter how many terrorist leaders they eliminate, there is always someone else to take their place.
It's a never ending cycle of madness. I give this book 5 stars. The authors did a great job of bringing it to life without too much information. I would have liked the pictures to be organized per chapter and a map to consult would have been nice. I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in the middle eastern and Israel conflicts carried out at a covert level.
It's full of information I did not previously know about. Aug 24, Nikunj rated it it was amazing. There is no doubt that 'Mossad' was and is probably one of the best secret service agencies in the world at present. After reading Start-Up nation I became a fan of Israel but now I salute their spirit, their patriotism and their talent in every sphere they wish to engage. Though some of the stories may look like movie pick ups we should remind ourselves of the old saying-"Truth is stranger than Fiction".
If you wish to pick something enthralling, scintillating and titillating the secret fighter There is no doubt that 'Mossad' was and is probably one of the best secret service agencies in the world at present. If you wish to pick something enthralling, scintillating and titillating the secret fighter inside you then read this book. Mar 28, Sumit RK rated it really liked it. Mossad, the formidable Israeli Intelligence Agency, needs no introduction. It is widely regarded as one of the best Intelligence agencies in the world. This remarkable book documents the amazing and controversial events in the history of Mossad.
Each of the missions has been described like a suspense story. From blowing up the Syrian nuclear reactor, to capturing hidden Nazi war criminals. From rescuing Jews from enemy countries, to double agents. Each chapter unfolds like a thriller and keeps you hooked right till the end. Feb 13, Jean rated it really liked it Shelves: The book is written more like a spy novel than a dry history book.
The authors tell the stories of the more famous and well known escapades of the Mossad. The Mossad is recognized as the best intelligence agency in the world. The authors tell the story of the most famous and well justified mission of the kidnapping by the Mossad of Adolf Eichmann in Argentina and bringing him back to Israel to stand trial for war crimes.
Bar-Zohar tells about the bombing of the Syrian nuclear reactor and the ass The book is written more like a spy novel than a dry history book. Bar-Zohar tells about the bombing of the Syrian nuclear reactor and the assassination of the Iranian nuclear scientist. They also tell the escapades of master spy Elie Cohen.
Bar-Zohar not only reports the successful cases, but ones that turned into a disaster for the agency. The book is a fun read but the book fails to provide the wider perspective of the events. The authors failed to provide the political context of each event. Very little is told about the founding of the Jewish State in or about the geopolitical outcome of the Six Day War in Without all the background, one would not understand the problems with the Palestinians. The authors do provide a brief history of the founding of the Mossad and a brief biography of its early leaders.
But if you are looking for a light weight spy story, the book is a fun read. The book had the potential of providing an in-depth view of the role of the Mossad and its effects on Israel.
Instead, they went for a lightweight fun read. I read this as an audiobook downloaded from Audible. The book is about fourteen and half hours long. Benjamin Isaac does a good job narrating the book.
There is no way the book deserves less than five stars as Mossad it self is a five star secret service. The book is well written and better than many spy novels.

In my opinion,Mossad agents are better than fictional character of James Bond. Nov 09, Priya rated it it was amazing. Its like reading a thriller - only that this is real!

Simply love the spirit of Israelis. The book recounts some of the great successes and failures of the secret Israeli agency. The book is divided into twenty two distinct chapters, each one a story of its own. The operations range from the complex assassinations of Syrian general Muhammad Suleiman, finding and assassinating rogue scientist Gerald Bull he w Mossad: For more reviews and bookish posts please visit: Aug 17, Shivani Palekar rated it really liked it.
Mossad is a fast paced, thrilling work of non-fiction that gives the reader a glance into the seemingly impenetrable, censored world of one the most powerful secret service agencies. It is divided into 22 distinct chapters, covering several operations from the kidnapping and execution of the Nazi - Adolf Eichmann to the Israel sponsored emigration of Ethiopian Jews.
A must read for anyone interested in the world of espionage - the book not only covers the greatest successes of the agency, but al Mossad is a fast paced, thrilling work of non-fiction that gives the reader a glance into the seemingly impenetrable, censored world of one the most powerful secret service agencies. A must read for anyone interested in the world of espionage - the book not only covers the greatest successes of the agency, but also delves into its failures although in a slightly rushed and superficial manner. My only complaints about the book are that at times the authors get a little too particular with the physical descriptions of the numerous characters, as well as with the conversations that took place, blurring the lines between fiction and non fiction as I'm not sure how well the narrators could recall events that occurred decades ago.
Lastly, the ending was a little too abrupt for my taste, and I would have liked a little more insight into the Iran scenario. Apr 06, Mohamed rated it liked it. However, being a book about the shadow world and the dark operations, you can't be sure that any of its stories are accurate or true and maybe if you are of a national that one of the operations took place aga let me start by explaining how I think. However, being a book about the shadow world and the dark operations, you can't be sure that any of its stories are accurate or true and maybe if you are of a national that one of the operations took place against, then you might have your own version or versions.
The Israelis as always call anyone doing anything they don't like a terrorist. I would prefer they accept that they have enemies like any other nation and as they gave the right to themselves to do what's necessary for their survival and plans, they have to give it to others. The book clearly in more than one occasion call the territory "the Occupied" and that is enough reason to justify what all the neighboring countries are doing and especially the Palestinians to fight the people who occupied their land by force.
I don't care if its the promised land or if its an Arab land and I am talking about the reality that hundreds and thousands of Jews immigrated to this land and took it from the people who already lived there. In the book, the Israelis have killed innocent people by mistake or not , used terror to frighten their enemies and to prove that they are superior than their enemies and everybody else I liked the hunt for Nazis and i am fascinated by how they were able to accomplish the missions, like any operation that ends in bringing the target from abroad and from a foreign country is always fascinating.
I am also sad that the creation of Israel and what the Zionist did intentionally or unintentionally created the fear and hate between the Jews and Arabs in Arabic countries, and I can only talk about Egypt. Before Israel, there were no difference between Jews or non Jews in Egypt S and I imagine that some started to hate the Arabs and so on.
I also learned from the book that Israel is not that perfect Inside the religion are sub-religions as in other religion. Maybe some call for peace, others call for annihilating non jews.. It also shows how Israel doesn't respect any agreements with other countries will do whatever is best for its interest. As you read and find out what the Mossad will do to eliminate or take out threats, you should begin to think whether they are lying, faking, or staging incidents just to justify killing others who they regard as enemies or "terrorists".
We however, have to blame our own intelligence bodies for their failure not to act.. At the end there is no such thing as peace.. Peace is the highest degree humanity can achieve and that will not happen because , at the end, we are humans. If you like spies stories, then its a good book to read and maybe cross reference the stories with other stories or sources Apr 10, Rohit Enghakat rated it really liked it Shelves: The book is well researched and gives an insight into the Israeli agency's operations.
The book is divided in 21 chapters each a different operation undertaken. Each of the story reads like a thriller and I enjoyed the book tremendously. I have to say that I learned loads of stuff from this book. It brushes over most of the elite sections and leaders of mossad and most of their big operations. I like that the authors highlight both the victories and failures of the past operations of mossad.
But I would have liked it if it was written with more depth. Some chapters cover particular operations with many details and researched information. But some chapters fell short of this. But I still enjoyed this and am glad that I picked it up. Mar 28, Donna rated it really liked it Shelves: I have read a few books describing the work of the Mossad and have always been impressed with their determination to accomplish what is necessary to protect their country and people from terrorism and war.
If you want more detail, read books about individual operations.
Imperial Yellow, A Novel
But this book presents an overview of several major operations with enough detail to be interesting and exciting enough to not want to put the book down. Unlike a book, however, these operations actually happened. The book is mostly unbiased and honest, describing serious failures and major mistakes as well as the many successes of the Mossad.
It gives a thorough description of the many purposes of the Mossad from rescuing a kidnapped child, transporting Jews back to Israel from all over the world, providing training and arms for Jews to defend themselves in areas of extreme persecution as well as carrying out the operations that we associate them with. The book details the political problems involved with carrying out operations in foreign countries and the fluctuating support given to Israel by most nations, including the US.
When they cannot get support from the rest of the world, they don't let that stop them The stories are inspiring. The Mossad spent years on some operations before they had success This book exposes the spread of terrorism It also shows the difficulty of engaging in operations like this when more and more countries have facial recognition software and closed circuit cameras on every street and sometimes in every hotel foyer and hallway. One operation was totally pieced together with a complete timeline from the arrival to departure of each Mossad operative; from hotels to restaurants to streets, rental cars and airports.
Some people might find this book depressing or discouraging, but it is not. It shows how people confront a difficult problem and overcome. There is no complaining or wondering why this terrorism and threat of war and desire to destroy them as a nation and as a people occur. They just have a strong faith that their nation and people are worth fighting for and they have a strong optimism that they will survive. I found this book a difficult book to put down. Jan 23, Sanjana rated it liked it. This book reads like a spy novel, but also not because instead of building up, it includes short stories that effectively describes the potency, lethality of Mossad; the secret service of Israel.
It includes several high-profile missions and assassinations, some of which are pretty efficiently and effortlessly ordered and carried out. But, the way sentences were carried out to kill scientists, officers, members of the Arab countries and organizations, nonchalantly, not in the least caring about their families. Still, the book explains the reasons why such assassinations were carried out. Many might disagree, 'an eye for an eye will leave the whole world blind' is not something Mossad believes in. Other than that, the sincerity with which Mossad made sure to get its agents safely back if caught was applaudable.
Also includes the Black September Case which has been adapted in the movie, 'Munich', do give that a watch! If you are looking for a spy novel, do not pick this one up, because all the missions are real and while they may seem impossible, they are not. Pick it up to know more about how Mossad functions and to know the various deadly secret missions it undertook, since Israel's formation to the very recent ones. Feb 23, Varun rated it liked it. The book is badly written with most of the stories and opinions being one-sided. When an Israeli was assassinated, it is described as an 'act of terrorism'; when the assassin was an Israel it is a 'necessary move to protect Israel'.
The authors try to spice up the story and make it sound like a spy novel with unnecessary, and often cumbersome, detail -- and fail quite terribly. Covert operations, as anyone who watched 'Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy' would know, are nothing like an Ian Fleming book. T The book is badly written with most of the stories and opinions being one-sided. The only way in which this book has made me wiser is by giving me a close-up, albeit one-sided, picture of the geopolitical situation in and around Israel.
Jan 31, Deepthi rated it really liked it. This book was equal parts fascinating and horrifying. You can feel the thrill of operations being precisely planned and executed and you almost feel like a participant. However, the ease with which lives are taken, borders crossed and identities changed makes it all a little scary. On the whole though, a great read. I really enjoyed reading this book.
By seeing the title one may include that book only deals with successful operations of missed. But this book also deals with several failures. One chapter is amusing when failed operation meant that Mossad has to save the Life of the enemy whom they intend to kill. Very neatly written and highly recommendEd to those who love spy and action books. Apr 19, Thejas rated it liked it. Mossad - Bollywood style I wrote a spy novel when I was in my teens.
